whether elizabeth warren violated ethics. new questions about whether she is practicing law without a license. megyn: fox news alert on the same day president obama speaks to the world about violence around the middle east. two news-making polls on the recent riots overseas. brand-new hour of "america live." the new rasmussen poll asked voters if relations with the islamic world are better or worse than when president obama took office four years ago. 45% said they are worse. 18% thought things have gotten better. 31% believe the president has not made any difference one way or the other. the president appeared before the united nations and blamed this most recent unrest on a video that insulted islam, portions of which wound up on youtube. a rasmussen poll shows americans don't quite believe that explanation. joining me, scott rasmussen. are these -- is it it a partisan poll? did you ask democrats, republicans and independents when it comes to our relations with the middle east. >> yes and there is a huge partisan gap on this. republicans believe the relations with the muslim world
aides did in appearing on this video where they were mocking elizabeth warren for her native-american heritage. that is apology sufficient and should this be an issue in this campaign? >> certainly it's up to the people of massachusetts to determine that. they have watched this race, they have seen scott brown tell people to take a look at elizabeth warren to determine her heritage, which is frankly offensive to me, people in massachusetts will make that determination. but i will say this. again, we have a race where elizabeth warren is fighting for the values that american families care about, making sure we all have an opportunity that our kids all have access to education, that medicare and medicaid are there for our families within we need them and that's the difference in the election and i believe strongly that elizabeth will do well in massachusetts in november. >> senator patty murray, thank you very much. thanks for being with us today. >>> and developing now, on "andrea mitchell reports," we are watching the united nations where israel's prime minister, benjamin net
and missouri. >> massachusetts scott brown and elizabeth warren has turned out to be the weirdest race in the country. >> don't understand why he went after this issue and so far has not backed down. he's still talking about what she did or did not say about her own ethnic heritage. >> this was an issue earl hi on in the campaign. scott brown went early very hard against elizabeth warren on the basis of race. and while it got a lot of national attention, sort of everything he does gets national attention. sort of a darling of the beltway media and so he gets a lot of attention for what he does. he got a lot of press for it but didn't get any movement in the polls. polling pretty well and consistently throughout and then he took a dive. she gave that well received speech to the democratic convention polls generally turned even more strongly toward the democrats he ended up losing in four straight polls in massachusetts and then all of a sudden he's put her race back as the main reason to vote against her. he has never disproven that she is native american. he says essentially look at he
in a bid to block elizabeth warren. incumbent senator scott brown has criticized her for claiming she is part mid-american without providing documentation. on the video, they are seen making gestures and chant during a rally of supporters. she says she is appalled by the footage. >> [indiscernible] >> those are some of the headlines. this is democracy now!, democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. >> we welcome our listeners and viewers from around the country and the world. greek workers have launched their first general strike since the country's conservative-led coalition government came to power in june. greeks are converging today outside the parliament today in athens. protests are scheduled in over 60 cities. the nation's ports, airports, banks, schools, and tourist sites are all shut down. >> the european union will never be in europe for the workers then bent every country should fight to detach itself from the european union. that is the movement that should be taking place. >> thousands of people surrounded the parliament to protest austerity measures. t
been watching, that one in massachusetts between elizabeth warren and scott brown. republicans really need to be able to win that so they can actually net elsewhere. >> all right. so one thing, though, when it comes to the todd akin-clare mccaskill race, we're seeing the first mccaskill ad taking him to task about the legitimate rape comments. let's take a look. >> todd akin said he didn't like social security. on september 3rd, 2011, todd akin said medicare was unconstitutional. march 16th, akin said he wants to abolish the minimum wage and august 19th todd akin said only some rapes are legitimate. what will he say next? >> so, mark this is the first time she's used that about the legitimate rape comment. what strikes you about this ad in general? >> we knew it was coming and came pretty much minutes if not hours after we all knew that todd akin was officially going to remain in the missouri senate contest. the other thing i think is quite striking potentially more damaging ads that clare mccaskill could run with the republicans and mitt romney all saying that somehow todd akin neede
under elizabeth warren. elizabeth warren is the person generally credited with coming up with the idea of the cfpb and encourage the president to set up the agency. he did not choose her for the job. he did choose richard cordray in a sort of contentious appointment at the beginning of this yearhe this has been running it ever since. host: explain one thing for us. it reads that -- that's a reference to the fact that it's fairly new. i want to show you a clip from a house hearing last week where congressman japan's ruling question the credibility of the new agency. [video clip] >> you came before us six months ago as an unlawful appointee and six months later nothing has changed. dodd-frank has made you a very powerful appointee, but it has not made you a legitimate appointee, and it has not made you accountable. it is certainly not personal to you. but as long as this big legal cloud hangs over you and your agency, your credibility and efficacy of both you and your agency are compromised. >> i would say you have a tremendous credibility, particularly with college students you are help
senate races we have been unable to fact check. we have a elizabeth warren and some of the claims there in the massachusetts race. we have not had the staff. >> i think your question want to e-mail sent by the campaign staff. we have a section devoted to viral e-mail and some of this stuff is amazingly delusional and we can't resist going after it. we signed up for and get the mails they send to their supporters. bass -- they tend to be the same messages over and over again that sometimes we have a bunk. sometimes they go over the top. we got one from the romney campaign -- i don't know what they were thinking, after the fed stood there and ben bernanke held a news conference saying they're going to go through another round of quantitative easing, printing money. the message to donors was this -- the "barack obama is at it again, spending your tax dollars per "two things about that -- the fed is reducing the deficit and making huge profits returning record amounts of money to the treasury as a result of all their previous quantitative easing. so the opposite of spending your tax d
to be selective. lately we focus almost entirely on presidential races. we love to fact check elizabeth warren, some of the claims on the massachusetts race, and we have not have the staff the reagan >> we have a section devoted to viral e-mails. i agree, we get the e-mails they send out to their supporters. they seem to be the same messages over and over again. sometimes they do go over the top, and just the other day we got one from the romney campaign. i do not know what they are thinking. they held a news conference saying they were going through another round of quantitative easing, printing money, so here goes a message to donors -- "barack obama is at it again, spending your tax dollars. two things about that. the fed is reducing the deficits. they are making huge profits return in record amounts to the trade. the fed is legally independent and run by a guy originally appointed by george w. bush. this was so completely over the top we decided we have got to do a piece of that, but pretty much these messages to true believers have got to exceed what we have already been debunked before w
